Formed from the ashes of Nation of Ulysses and the Make-Up, Weird War are the latest step on Ian Svenonious's curious journey from anti-American noise terrorism to gospel manifestos for liberation. In the sleeve notes of Illuminated by the Light, Svenonious describes himself as a "minister for information" while mischievously pointing out that his song Why Do Guys Like Girls Like That addresses "a good rhetorical question which was notoriously shied away from during the presidential debates". Performed with regular collaborator Michelle Mae and drummer Sebastian Thomson of the Fucking Champs, the new musical manifesto is warped glam-funk-disco in the spirit of Frank Zappa.
